HOUSTON - Senior Isaiah Sweeney claimed two individual event titles and one as a member of the men's 4x100-meter relay team during the fourth and final day of the Conference USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Holloway Track/Ley Field Sunday evening. Sweeney turned in three of the Cougar's eight individual titles won over the weekend to be named Male High Point Scorer of the Meet.

The Missouri City, Texas, native led the men's team to a second-place finish with 152.5 points, falling just 14 points shy of UTEP (166.5 points). The women's team earned a third-place finish with 81 points, behind UCF (167 points) and SMU (99.5 points).

Sweeney, who accumulated 32.5 points for Houston, won his first gold of the evening as the anchor leg of the men's 4x100-meter relay. The team (Leshon Collins, Issac Williams, James Arnett, & Sweeney) ran a season best time of 39.86 to top their competition. Later in the day, Sweeney ran personal bests in both the men's 100- and 200-meter dash to take first. He ran 10.38 in the 100m and 21.11 in the 200m. Fellow sprinter Leshon Collins finished just 0.01 seconds behind Sweeney in the 100m to take the silver medal.

Junior John Fortune won the shot put competition for the men's first gold of the day. He claimed the top spot after throwing a personal best of 17.90m(58-8.75) on his sixth and final toss. On the women's side, sophomore Samatha Taylor took home the bronze with a personal record of 15.04m (49-4.25).

In the men's 110-meter hurdles, freshman Isaac Williams ran a personal best of 13.86 to place first, while teammate Leon Bullock followed in third with a time of 14.24. Sophomore Sade-Mariah Greenidge led the way for Houston in the women's 100-meter hurdles after crossing the finish line second (13.16) to set a new personal record. Alicia Perkins and Amber Sellers placed seventh (13.74) and eighth (14.14), respectively.

 

 

Later in the day, Greenidge placed fourth overall in the women's 400-meter hurdles with a time of 59.30. On the men's side, freshman Eric Futch topped his competition with a season best of 51.07 to claim his first collegiate individual title.

In the men's 800-meter dash, sophomore Anthony Coleman won the title after recording a time of 1:51.60. Teammate Drevan Anderson-Kaapa, who came into the race as the No. 1 seed, followed in third with a time of 1:51.96.

Junior Cassie Wiley placed third overall in the women's high jump after clearing the bar at the 1.75m (5-8.75) mark. This mark ties Wiley's personal best, which was first set at the TSU Relays on March 15-16. Sophomore John Horton added six points for the Cougar men with his third place finish in the men's triple jump (15.09m; 49-6.25).

Houston will have the next week off before traveling to Austin for the NCAA West Regional on May 23-25.
